Educational Development Corporation Announces First Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results

TULSA, Okla., July 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Educational Development Corporation (“EDC”) (NASDAQ: EDUC) ( today reports net sales and earnings per share results for the first quarter ended May 31, 2019.

Randall White, CEO of Educational Development Corporation, announced that for the fiscal first quarter ended May 31, 2019, the Company reports net revenues of $27,587,400, a decrease of $2,434,900, or 8%, when compared to $30,022,300 for first quarter of the previous year.  Net earnings totaled $1,363,600 for quarter ended May 31, 2019, compared to $1,816,600 for the quarter ended May 31, 2018, a decrease of 25%.  Earnings per share for the quarter were $0.17 compared to $0.22 for the same quarter in the previous year, down 23% on a fully diluted basis.

The net revenues of our direct sales division, Usborne Books & More (“UBAM”) totaled $25,248,100 during the quarter ended May 31, 2019, a decrease of 9% from $27,716,100 for the quarter ended May 31, 2018.  Our average number of active consultants was 31,600 during the quarter ended May 31, 2019, a decrease of 3,500, or 10%, from the average active consultant count reported for the first quarter of last year of 35,100. 

The Publishing’s divisions net revenues increased 1% to $2,339,300 in the first quarter of fiscal 2020 from $2,306,200 for the same quarter a year ago.  Publishing sales increased primarily from an increase in order volumes with smaller customers and fewer returns with our largest customers during the first quarter of fiscal 2020.

Per Mr. White, “The decline in the average active consultants between the common first quarters was the primary driver behind the decline in UBAM net revenues.  The significant factor contributing to this decline was in February 2018, we ran the most successful recruiting special in the 30-year history of our UBAM Division. This special brought in over 8,800 new consultants which contributed to the double-digit net revenues growth we reported in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019.  Following the first quarter of last year, our average active consultant count has remained relatively consistent; and we have reported between approximately 30,000 and 33,000 average active consultants each quarter.  Our average active consultant count remained consistent with this level during the first quarter of fiscal 2020, at 31,600.”

Mr. White continued, “To help us return to growth in our UBAM division, we are currently working on several new technology initiatives which we expect will help us recruit and retain the upcoming generations of new consultants entering the workforce.  These new groups of late millennials and early 'Gen Zs' expect mobility features in their everyday activities and we are committed to delivering these capabilities.  Several of our new mobility initiatives are being rolled out this summer and our consultants are excited to begin using them.” 

Per Mr. White, “I am also excited to announce that we have just completed the most successful annual convention in UBAM’s history.  This year marks the 30th Anniversary of our direct selling division and we celebrated this anniversary with over 1,700 consultants and leaders that attended our annual convention in the last few days of June.  These consultants received 'Tier 1' training and were able to collaborate and bond with our other consultants from around the country and are more energized and equipped as they return to their home markets.  We believe this was the most productive convention we have ever had and expect great results from our recently announced 30th Anniversary Recruiting Special that we are running during the month of July.”

“Our Publishing Division reported modest growth this quarter as we continue to add new retail customers.  We have high expectations that the Publishing Division will continue to grow in the upcoming year as our smaller retail customers expand our product offerings in their stores and we return to historical sales levels with our largest retail accounts.”

Mr. White continued, “The decline in pretax profits between the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was directly related to the decline in the net revenues of our UBAM division.   However, our pretax profit percentage of 6.7% for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 continues to reflect that our business model remains consistently profitable.”

Mr. White concluded, “Our Board has approved the continued payment of dividends this quarter and authorized a $0.05 per share cash dividend which will be paid on or around Tuesday, September 10, 2019 to shareholders of record August 20, 2019.  We are pleased to continue our recent practice of paying quarterly dividends.”
